So my family just got busted for illegally downloading a Zappa song.....

#1
that we've never heard of before. We got a Media com notice today. My dad called, and convinced them that it wasn't us. Which it wasn't. Turns out it was someone tapping into our wi-fi. I've only heard Zappa on the radio. We have an alibi, too. It(the report) said that we downloaded it at 5:03 PM, Sunday, March 1. On that same Sunday, we went to a visitation for my grandpa, who passed away that Wednesday. We were there from 4:00 to 7:30. We just avoided a $250,000 lawsuit. we didn't do it.


TL;DR: some dude used my family's wifi to download a zappa song. we had an alibi. read long paragraph for details.our wifi is now encrypted.

Come to think of it, my penis should've listened to more death metal.

So my question is. Can Pre-Cum fluid pass through my underwear, my jeans, onto and through her jeans, through her underwear, and impregnate her?

i've never actually heard of someone getting involved with the law for a single song. odd. you're an anomaly.

youre one in a million, theres really no cause for alarm for everyone else. they've practically given up on busting downloaders, and now only occasionally go after uploaders.

Yeah, we're the first. I'm just happy that they believed us. Most people wouldn't in a situation like that.

To avoid this in the future, I suggest securing your router.

I'm glad I live in Canada. Our laws are too vague about downloading.

The RIAA usually takes down the people who only get a few songs. That way they don't get laughed out of court when they try to sue for hundreds of millions on a family.
#17
Dude, that paragraph is HUGE! Do you really expect us to read all that?
just kidding

That's surprising though, do you know what website he downloaded it from?
#18
That's why you don't download through p2p or torrent. They only track p2p and torrents. Go to skreemr.com or search mediafire.com with Google.

Oh yeah, and if guitar hero got you into the guitar? you're really playing for the wrong reasons.

there is no wrong reason to play a guitar, except for world enslavement and extermination of certain races, but those guys never make it big anyway.

Actually they only go after uploaders because those are the only people they can see, as far as I know (my entire family is fairly good with computer) the RIAA can't see if you if you're just downloading, you have to actually share your files in order to get caught.

The only downside is that the music gives you violent diarrhea.

You get used to it. After I came back from Mexico, it felt weird to crap normally.

I still think that legal action being taken against you for what is on your private property (your PC) is an invasion of privacy.
We're only strays.
